Nautical Charts make wonderful wallpaper, but , for your mural, you may want to eliminate some of the fine printing that appears on a nautical chart.
Pat Fisher is a good example of this. On her mural of the Delaware Bay, there is quite a bit of text on the land in the upper corner of her mural. We removed it and sent her another view of the mural.
Now, it looked too empty with all the land and no detail. We tried a few options with color changes, but it still looked too bare.
I happened to know of a royalty-free line drawing of a tall ship that I thought would look good in that corner. I sent her a couple of pieces of art to put in the corner and she chose the tall ship that I first had in mind.
To make it look good, I cleaned up the drawing, taking out some flaws in the picture, and then made the background transparent as you see here.. I colored the trim a dark brown and then pasted the image in the center of the plain land.
Now the mural has some character not found in the original nautical chart!
Do I need to remind you that we are the only custom nautical chart mural company that does this kind of work?
